If you haven't heard, poet and cultural activist Nick Carbo recently had to have his right foot amputated on an emergency basis--a month before his insurance coverage would have kicked in! There's a GoFundMe fundraiser to help with his daunting health costs. Recent donations helped him get a wheelchair and a shower chair. I'm grateful that Paloma Press is running a Book-Match program for donations. Basically, donations of at least $25 will garner 3 publications worth more than double that amount:

MANHATTAN: An Archipelago by Eileen Tabios
BLUE by Wesley St. Jo and Reme Grefalda
MARAWI by Eileen Tabios and Albert Alejo

Thank you, Paloma Press!

For the same $25 donation, you can receive a copy of Nick Carbo's edited anthology PINOY POETICS from Meritage Press (contact me if you wish to avail yourself of this offer). Let's help a poet who's helped many poets.
